A post on Devshed forums showed that the php manual did not have any detailed info about ibase_service_attach and some other Interbase/Firebird functions, of course the question has been answered in the forums and the user promised to add a note on the official docs, anyway here is a small example of use of that specific function:
20GB of video data available, with around 100 hours of firebird related presentations from Firebird Conference
There is currently about 20GB of video data available, with around 100 hours of firebird-related presentations from last two Firebird Conferences and other events.

What is IBExpertLive?
HK-Software has implemented a streaming system based on the Firebird database server, which publishes pictures and audio, as needed to view the presentations from the 2004 and 2005 Firebird Conferences. We will also be adding IBExpert tutorial videos enabling you to learn more about working with Firebird and InterBase with IBExpert.
To use IBExpertLive, you need a firebird connection via Internet using port 13050 to our server on IP 18.104.22.168. If it does not work, please check your firewall settings. For reporting any other questions/problems regarding IBExpertLive, please use the following contact addresses:
IBELive newsgroup: hk-software.ibexpert.live (English, German and Russian language).
E-mail: ibexpertlive at ibexpert.biz.
There might be some videos that are not working yet, even if they are on the list. Please bear with us; we’ll have everything up and running as soon as possible.

The Firebird SQL data application block is intended to speed up development, and it should be used in conjunction with data layer classes in much the same way as Microsoft’s data block. The sample included with this article uses the embedded Firebird SQL database (included in sample) to demonstrate the use of the application block without having to bother setting up a database.
Firebird SQL data application block was inspired by the Microsoft Application blocks. The block provides overloaded methods to query a Firebird database which return a dataset, data table, or integer in the case of scalar database calls. An additional overload method takes an existing dataset as a parameter and fills the results of a stored procedure send as parameter as well.
For those who are on Linux and want to extract database’s metadata, please have a look to firebird/interbase native isql tool, that permits to export DDL as follow:
isql DBalias -o ddl.sql -x -u SYSDBA -p masterkey
